Yogi Bear

Live Like Yogi Bear

Just in time for the much-anticipated (?) Yogi Bear live-action/CGI movie, Insight Editions is releasing Yogi’s first book in hardcover on December 1st. Life is a Pic-a-Nic: Tips and Tricks for the Smarter Than Average Bear was written by Yogi with the assistance of Earl Kress. Here’s the publisher’s description: “For Yogi Bear, the glass is always half full and every day is a gift ripe with opportunities, new friends, and tasty treats. The Tao of Yogi is one of love and tolerance: love thy neighbor, harbor no ill will, and share your gifts, and life will reward you with goodies. Live by these rules and you can’t go wrong. Happiness is Yogi’s message, his reason for being, and Life is a Pic-a-Nic is his manifesto.” You heard it here folks.

Yogi Bear. In 3D.

In the “Where the heck did this come from?” department… Warner Brothers is releasing a new live-action-with-CGI Yogi Bear movie this coming December 17th. Starring as the voice of the animated Yogi is none other than Dan Aykroyd, with Justin Timberlake (!) as the voice of Yogi’s little bear-friend Boo-Boo. And yes, it’s all about grabbing pic-a-nic baskets and running away from Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh). The new Real-3D film is directed by Eric Brevig (Journey to the Center of the Earth). You can check out the brand new trailer on YouTube and see what you think.
